    Do I have to unhook that battery to remove it? what do I remove from behind the light. I was looking tonight and it just looked like some plastic parts and wires, but I couldn't necessarily see where any screws or anything were located...

    Called the Ford dealership. With this kind of car you have to take the headlight off the car and pull it off to access it from the back. No need to move the battery. I'd gotten that far and still couldn't get to the headlight. So, for any other's with a Taurus, you need a wrench and the headlight comes off without too much difficulty.

    Thanks though!!

Danielle, On the driver side you may have stuff in the way, which may have to be removed, to change bulb. Sometimes it is easier to remove headlight then change bulb and reassemble. Videos attached make it look fairly easy to change he bulb with out removal of headlight.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck.

Headlight Issue


No, you just might have to take out the battery. I was able to do it without taking the battery out, but only because I was being stubborn. There is one thing I definitely have to say is that you should change both headlights at the same time. My driver side headlight was the first one to go and I didn't listen and just changed that one, days later my passenger side one went out!

Fuse panel


Unfortunately this is not a fuse issue. It would be if both headlights were blown. The fuse controls both headlights not just the one. I would be inclined to think either a.) you may have gotten a bad bulb from the store. or b.) you have a broken wire somewhere or c.) a ground wire broken. I would try replacing the bulb again just to eleminate that being the problem (and if its not you got a spare bulb just in case then) and go from there. Good luck and thanks for using fixya!

Sincerely,

JC

2005 Honda Accord headlight replacement.


For the driver's side headlight, yes, the battery must be removed to change the headlight. There are three screws but they don't have to be removed, just loosened enough to where the bulb can rotate ninety degrees to pull out. Be prepared to reenter the radio code as disconnecting the battery will cause the radio to electronically lock out. The radio code can be found on the security card or inside the user's manual if you're lucky.

Replacing headlight bulb


AutoZone.com has lots of information like this. Unfortunately, they want engine size and other information I don't have before providing the information. Here's the link:

Also, check the owner's manual. I changed a headlight in a car last week and was surprised to find that the owner's manual had detailed instructions.
